According to the security, the star hit him in the face with her forearm, grabbed his ear and pushed him in the face as he attempted to prevent her from re-entering the hotel. Officers noted that Abraham showed signs of intoxication.
The victim “sustained minor injury and was not transported to a hospital.” At the time, a spokesperson for the Polo Lounge confirmed there was an altercation involving one of their patrons but refused to say more.
Abraham denied getting physical. In a video obtained by TMZ, she could be heard berating officers after the incident.
She started off by swearing at the police and denying injuring anyone. Then she turned around and cried while saying she didn’t want to be arrested.
After her arrest, a representative, Elizabeth Lloyd, said the situation had “been blown out of proportion.”
